If you look at the ddecline in rates of death from diseases before vaccines compared to diseases being prevented from immunizations now, it would be absurd not to take the 30 seconds it takes to receive the vaccines that prevent those diseases. Right now, vaccine-preventable diseases are at the lowest that they have ever been. With these proven facts, yet we still have some of the population that refuses vaccines. Not for religious or medical purposes, but just because they refuse to get vaccinated for personal preferences. Not only does these choices affect them, but their own children as well.
We the people deserve the right to be free. We the people deserve the right of religion. We the people deserve the right to refuse to force children to get medical vaccinations before attending a public school. For decades, the altercation between whether children should be vaccinated or not has been debated between many parents, teachers, and even federal level officials. Should the United States put public safety before civil rights?
These are questions people are asking daily about vaccines. A lot of people get vaccinated. Others don't and have a legal reason not to get them. But people are more at risk if they don't get vaccinated. If you contract a disease because you didn't get vaccinated that's putting others at risk.
Modern medicine provides people with the ability to protect themselves from the world’s most fatal diseases. Merely a century ago, it was not uncommon for a child to die as a result of diseases such as polio, pertussis, and tuberculosis. Today, it is highly unlikely for a person to contract these diseases, let alone die from them. However, refusal of vaccinations has been increasing throughout the years due to the anti-vaccination movement. This movement declares mandatory vaccines unconstitutional and vaccinations overall as the cause of autism.
The Choice is Obvious Over the past decade, a new movement has been prevalent in the United States targeting vaccinations. This movement is known as the Anti-Vaccination movement. Vaccinations are a complex and counterfactual subject that are actually quite difficult to comprehend for some individuals. A main component of vaccines is the concept of herd immunity which merely states that you need a high percentage of a population to get vaccinated in order to protect against outbreaks. Once again, the topic of vaccinations is extremely counterfactual.
Although the movie credited antineoplastons as the “most important discovery in cancer treatment – ever” (Burzynski), clinical evidence as well as dangerous results do not support this biased claim. Upon further research, the antineoplaston treatment did not follow proper protocol for the clinical trials, and the treatment was found to be dangerous in some cases. Because of these omissions, the documentary manipulates the viewer into believing its embellished claims. The real travesty is that Dr. Burzynski was selling false hope in a medicine bottle, and desperate families were willing to blindly take the treatment instead of seeking protection from the
Disease has been the greatest cause of deaths, and has helped to shape history. Diseases spread rapidly amongst people who were at war, because one side would have immunity to a certain disease, but the other side would not. Therefore, the epidemic would be passed on from a culture with a high immunity to a culture with a low immunity. It all depended on where you lived. Some cities or places were more immune to certain diseases and infections, while others had not yet been exposed to
In the United States Congress, this bill yields the hope of changing the lives of thousands. As of now, any research done on CBD is technically illegal. Fear of persecution has led many companies to refuse to study the agent. Consequently, the limited research renders a minute understanding of the long-term effects of the drugs in children. Let alone, how it works to impede seizures.
Living a healthy life is a struggle to some American citizens, being able to afford to be healthy poses a significant challenge to some Americans. With the costs of a hospital visit potentially being greater than a thousand dollars, many Americans choose to forego treatment and hope they recover from their ailment without medical attention. To combat this issue, president Obama introduced the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, to encourage Americans to sign up for health insurance to be able to afford healthcare. The ACA provides subsidies to low income families and individuals, fines businesses who do not provide health insurance to full time employees, expand existing federal and state health plans, and sets a standard for health insurance policies. Additionally, since the introduction of the ACA into the American healthcare system, insurance premiums have not increased at the same rate they have previously.
Immunizations have more positive outcomes than those that are negative. In short, it is imperative that children receive required vaccinations. Due to immunizations, diseases, such as measles and diphtheria, have been knocked out and the spread of infections has been avoided. Preventatives have been proven more helpful than hurtful and can save millions of lives. Receiving vaccinations is safe, and preventing an illness can be done just by getting a shot.
Vaccinations have been promoted since 1781, vaccinations are injected for Americans to maintain a healthy life and not become ill due to disease caused from measles, mumps, polio and several other diseases. However, there are those that do not agree with getting their children vaccinated due to religious beliefs and there are some people believe vaccinations can cause birth defects. Although, those are their beliefs; however there are those that enter our nation without being vaccinated and it is ultimately putting our children at risk for contracting various diseases, for example the Disneyland measles outbreak of 2014. The United States have been promoting vaccines since 1781, when Cotton Mather, a Puritan minister, encouraged smallpox vaccination. In 1796 an English physician and scientist named Edward Jenner created the first smallpox vaccine he called it the cowpox vaccination he then used it on an eight-year-old boy.
The Affordable Care Act: Bad For Some, Great For Millions For sometime, many US citizens have not had the resources to acquire an adequate health insurance plan. Although faced by many oppositions, the US government has found a solution, The Affordable Care Act. The Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare”, is a US healthcare reform law that focuses mainly on providing more Americans with access to an affordable health insurance. The Affordable Care Act is said to expand the affordability, quality, and availability of private and public health insurance through consumer protections, regulations, subsidies, taxes, insurance exchanges, and other reforms. Signed into law by President Obama in March 2010, hence the nickname “Obamacare”, the
It is unbelievable how these airborne diseases can easily affect people. To begin with, I honestly didn’t know the importance of vaccination. After watching Calling The Shots, I truly believe that vaccines can save many lives and prevent a lot of diseases. I am now aware of the epidemics that are surfacing the air. It is mind-boggling that many of these diseases, travel in the air and anyone can be affected if they are not shielded.
The number of people who choose not to immunize is steadily increasing, and has been on the rise since the 1980 's.Should children’s health be at risk for the greater good of community health? The news today is full of tragic stories about complications of vaccine use and there have been injuries from the beginning of vaccine use due to incomplete data on the side effects. The injuries have also brought about changes in the way vaccines are manufactured. The only way to get around the vaccine is to claim religious or medical exception. For either of these exceptions, one has to have a notarized affidavit for religious exception or a form from the medical staff as to the medical reason for the exception and if an outbreak occurs, exempted persons are not allowed to attend daycare, school, or their jobs.
The government wanted clean teeth, but instead got disease and death. The government wanted us to remain healthy and have fresh teeth with every drink of water, but we got sick and most had died yet they still continued with the fluoride. The people of America are sometimes too naïve to figure out what the government does to us, and some are actually smart enough to stand up to them and call them out on their mistakes. The main cause of death in America, when it comes to disease, is cancer. It ravages the American landscape and takes thousands of lives a year.
